According to the recipe caclulator recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp here, and assuming the following:
- That a "large" carton of chicken broth = 48 oz (as per here: swansonbroth.com/brothconversion.aspx)
- That this makes 6 servings (presuming roughly 6 cups liquid broth, as per the above site as well)
- Not counting the spices (assuming negligable carbs added.)
